UFC Cleans Up Roster With Several Releases


Six fighters have been released from their UFC contracts according to multiple reports.

The list includes Igor Pokrajac, Rodrigo Damm, Tom Niinimaki, Mike Rhodes, Sean Soriano and Alexis Dufresne.

All have been stuck in losing streaks, including Pokrajac, who has lost his last five – with only four counting as losses following a failed Joey Beltran drug test.

Damm, Niinimaki, Rhodes and Soriano each lost three in a row, while Dufresne dropped two straight – missing weight both times.
